Out of considornti 

teachers, and pupils the program will 

not begin until B o'clock. Among the 

interesting proas comments are the foi 

lowing; 

Roland W. Hayes, a young American 
tenor, tvaa tbm atar attraction, and he 
sang for hia first solo a DcKoven rum 
ber, "Nita Gitana" a! unusual sweot- 
neaa. Hie voico posaeagns a nmsicaV 
quality that i* not often heard even in 
those days of musical proficiency. 

Mr. Hayes, for his second number 
sang tbe tenor nria "Che Oelldu Mi- 
nina" from Puccini's opera "La Bo- 
hame." The foil beauty of bin voico 
«"as clearly depicted and at tbo close 
he was greeted with salvos of truly 
meant applauKC, Mr. Hayes waa com- 
pelled to respond to several encores. — 
Boston City Club Bulletin. 

From the many criticisms we have, 
Chosen one from FfcU<r Bole of Bos 
ton: 

"Mr. H-,;.v- li:i- boot, heard riore s-v- 
■Til timoa, and always with' pleasure. 
His voicr ha* an unusually beautiful 
quality. Powerful enough for stirring 

dramatic psjumgen with a hliernl rnnp-, 
and even tones tbroughont. Mr. Bayes 
uses tbia organ with intelligence nnd 
taate. His enunciation is delightfully 
clear. Whin be alngs there is no need 
for a book of tbe words, tie ha* made 

tation. Ho [«alisoa that dim*.* ahould 
not be anticipated; that continual em 
j> Stasis is not expression. Boat of all, he 
feels what ho sings nnd t* able to com 
municate kis sentiment* and emotion*. ' ' 

Mr. 11 ayes lias won for him self a 
plae* among the famous ainger* of 
America. Judging from tbe comments, 
Boston is juatly proud of bira, nnd

| -J. r«£ AMyOff Vf/ZO /7.4S MA0£ GOOD. -> 

Ad the primary election draws near, the question of the great- 
est interest to the people is centered around the candidates who 
are in the race for Mayor, because all classes of the people of St. 
Louis n-alize that the office of M*yor of this city, ia a BIG one. 

It linn not always been so, but the adoption of the new City 
Charter makes it 30. We therefore need a Rig mair to nil this 
office; a man with progressive ideas for a progressive city, and such 
has been the record of the present Mayor. Hon. Henry W. Kiel. 
Hi.- has gtven to St. Louis in the past four years a business admin- 
istration, which has set in motion the wheels of progress, that are 
really forcin^'ST. LOUIS TO THE FRONT. 

The least informed know that the Mayor has kept hia prom- 
ises to the people and that alone, in itself, is the strongest reason 
why he should receive the support of all classes at the coming 
primary. He has dune more for the Negro than any of his prede- 
cessors, and when he is re-elected at the election in April, we feel 
safe in saying that he will do even more. 

There is no" doubt that the Negroes generally will support 
Mayor Kiel, because he has been their friend. He has been out- 
spoken in their defense, whenever and wherever their rights as 
American citizens have been threatened or assailed. Quoting his 
own words given to the public on one occasion, he said: "I wish to 
say now. as I have already said on several occasions; that I am 
opposed to the enactment of a Law providing for the segregation 
of the colored people. If such a measure designed to carry out 
such a move ever reaches my office, I will promptly attach my 
veto to it. If the segregation question ever reaches the stage of a 
campaign issue for or against its adoption, 1 pledge myself to take 
the stump and make speeches opposing it, if it becomes necessary, 
to defeat it." 

This clearly shows his broad vision on questions of right and 
justice. Any man who has the back bone to take aueh a position 
in a city like St. Louis, when expecting to succeed himself, 
deserves to be re-elected and is safe to trust four more years in 
the office of Mayor. KIEL HAS MADE GOOD.

Write that word, high in all talrialpf 
and planning and' work. It la tho ilo- 
■an ovary true American dtlzen must 
aqnare up to, It la not true merclr 
becaoso ho said It bnt President Wil- 
son said recently what is troman- 
donatr true; 

"The coarse of this nation Is marked 
oat Clearly for the nert decade' at least 
What we shell do afterfhat depends 
trpon what vre will to do, bnt for th* 
next ten years America must be In 
position to help other nations.'' 

The flrst itep ta reaching that posi- 
tion of service la to do the plain duty

LESSON F OR FEB RUARY 26 

JESUS AT POOL OF BETHESDA. 

LESSON TBXT-JdTio t:l-h\ 

GOLDEN- TEXT-Il waa Jeeua Which 
had made bUn whole.— John s.li. 

Foiiowinu the events of last Son- 
day's lesson, Jesus went to Jerusalem 
to attend the feast (v. 1). He went up; 
according to the requirements of .tin ; 
Jewish law <E* 84:23; raw 0*1. 4:4), 
but he wbj not satisfied with the con- 
ventional fulfilling of the duties for 
that occasion, nor was he occupied 
with social- and commercial functions, 
bnt In "going shout doing good." The 
feast was an occasion of Joy and mirth 
every hand, but In the midst of it 
is thla great need to graphically pic- 
tured In this lesson. How true this la 
to our dally experlenra. Teachers 
should appeal to the imagination of 
their scholars and describe as vividly 
as possible this pool. Let them depict 
a room, on the floor of which la a pool ; 
In ijui- comer of the room a stairway 
leading up to the celling; surrounding 
the room, at the top dr the wall a 
broad walk; on the wall, looking down 
toward the floor and the pool is "a 
multitude of them that were blind, halt 
and withered." These were the 
wretched ones who sought the pool, 
and evidently Jeans Bought the most 
wretched of this company. 

I. .Issue went where there was need 
(v. 6). In the mldat of thla company 
Jesus "saw" this man tie. He tad been 
there often <v. 7), and hla case seemed 
to be beyond all hope, but there la 
nothing too hard for Qod (Gen. 16:14; 
Jet. 32:17).* 

Jeaua throws the reaponslblilty 
upon the man (v. 8). Jesua and eyes 
not only to see need, but he also saw 
Qod's and hla own personal power to 
relieve the need. The question Is. what 
do we see aa we Journey through lifoT 

III. Jesua waa moved with compas- 
sion (Matt. 14:14). Be always has that 
feeling when he looks upon suffering 
and tiie niiafortnnca cat sacs (Bab. 
13:8: 4:lS-l6; Dm. 483). Jeans does 
not do for the man what the man ran 
do for himself; so he makes Mb (trot 
appeal to the man's desire and, through 
bis desire, to the man's will, "Wilt thou 
be made TvhoieT" The fact that he baa 
been a long time In his predicament, or 

he fact that a doner has been a long 
line in an evil state Is no reason for 
wppoatag thaj, Jesua wIU. not take In- 
terest In him of that he cannot save 
and help and heal him (Matt, 9:21; 
Luke 8:43; Acts 8:2). Hla question 
throws "fie who*-» matter upon the will 
of the man, Jesua la willing and able; 
the Only queatiou U, are we willing 1 

IV, Jeaua tommind. the impossible. 
-The man thought the only way he 
Could be made Whole was through the 
efltieney of the waters tn thla pool, 
but Jeeua, by speaking a word, had 
the power that would heal hint (P*. 
107 :20| ; so today It is the power of 
the word of Chriat that can" save all 
who believe on him (Bom. 1:16). Alt 
wa have to do to live la to hear and 
believe (John 5:24).. 'With the com- 
mand of Christ, "illie, take op thy 
bed," was enabling power. The cure 
was not only compute, bnt It waa ln- 
■tantaneooB (Acta 8:7,8). 

V. Ha worked a? complete rare. He 
waa made whole even according to the 
question which Jesus had asked 
outset. The man at once began 
this Christ-given strength by taking up 
nu bed," and doing exactly aa he waa 
commanded (II Tim. 3:12). Jesus 
likes these hard csjmb, those of "long 
atanulnjr (v. 5): He also likes those 
that are the results of sin, tor that was 
his work In the world (v. 14; Matt. 
1 :21>. 

VI. Opposition and dangar <v*. lO- 
13). The) objection raised was that J» 
sua had traoKcreased the Jewish law. 
The man's answer to thla waa, "He 
hath made me whole." The word of 
Ood ta oar law (Matt. 17:5). The 
strength thst Jesus gives us 1b 
osed to obedience to him in glorifying 
his name. The man did not tell the 
Jew* who it waa that made him whole. 
because he did not know, himself : but 
aa sou u as be found out* wbo It was he 
told them without tear or hesitancy. 
He did not even wnlt for them to ask 
him, but sought an opportunity for 
witnessing (v. IS). Any man who 1b 
traly saved 'will at once give hla wit- 
ness to others. The admoniticn which 
Jesus gave to thin man (v. 14) still 
hoids good. Bow many, men we nave 
aeon who hare been saved from the 
drink habit or some other evil in life, 
and who have grown Indifferent or 
careieaa and returned to their' sin only 
to have "a worse thing cot 
thein." It ta "interesting to notice that 
Jeans performed this miracle la' the 
face of great opposition and danger. 

not by what he does tn them, bat what 
ha does In then, 

£2) Christianity la the goepel for 
the body »> well aa for soula of men. 

(*) The goepel of Jeans la the begin- 
ning of a new hie for *»«*/ man wbo> 



(5) So autter haw great tfca pand- 
as it modern madietae ,or the skill 

of phyaMan*, there la always the need 

of the Ureal PnynMtaa.
